Episodes:

  • Levels of Structural Organization

    The first episode introduces the human body as one of nature's most amazing and unique creations. Through the use of a comparative analogy of the structure of the human body and a contemporary building, the program highlights how similar their structures and inter-related elements are. Beginning with the framework structures, the examination moves on to the electrical communication systems and how they all work together. A brief look at the body's levels of structural organizations are highlighted graphically beginning with the chemical level, then the cellular level, next the tissue level, and finally the organ level. This shows how the components are working together for a common purpose and that the sum total is homeostasis.

  • Homeostasis

    The program looks at the concept of balance and trying to maintain a state of dynamic equilibrium as conditions change in human bodies. This quest to achieve and maintain balance is part of everyday experience for everyone and is called homeostasis. This basic principal of maintaining balance internally and externally is examined using two comparisons to help understand how it works. They are the sport of slack lining and the operation of the home furnace. The signals of these operations (receptor, stimulus, sensory pathway, integrating center, and effector) and how similar signals exist in the human body are discussed. The examples of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia are used to explain how the body is constantly trying to restore and maintain its equilibrium as a result of consequences or symptoms which might adversely affect health.

  • Anatomical Terms and Directions

    This episode explains that increased precision drives the use of specialized terms and language in most technical fields. In talking about the anatomy and physiology of the body, it seems like the discipline has a language all of its own. Many of the terms come from a Latin base and for those not familiar with Latin, sound like listening to a foreign language. With the use of these terms and language people can communicate the knowledge of the body more effectively. Some of the words denote orientation or direction while others refer to body cavities. There are thousands of words for describing the many other parts of the body. Whether it is names on street signs or highly trained professionals finding orientation in their jobs, there is a need for specialized language.

  • How Enzymes Catalyze Reactions

    Graphical modeling is used to demonstrate how enzymes catalyze reactions in substrates. The challenges enzymes face in catalyzing chemical reactions are described. A lock and key model is used to demonstrate the fit that is necessary to bind an enzyme's active site and its substrate. The induced fit model describes an enzyme as a flexible structure that can be modified as the substrate interacts with it. The program concludes with an explanation of how the ability of an enzyme to function efficiently can be affected by various factors, including temperature, pH, enzyme concentration, substrate concentration and molecule activators and inhibitors.

    Beginning with a description of electrolytes and their formation in a process known as dissociation, this program explains the importance of electrolytes in body chemistry. Acids and bases, also electrolytes, are described with examples, including discussion of acids found or produced in the body. The ability of acids and bases to neutralize each other's properties is explained. Strong and weak classes of acids and bases are discussed. An explanation of pH values is provided, with both household product and body organ examples. The program concludes by describing the critical importance of pH balance in regulating almost all life-sustaining functions in the human body.

  • Cell Organization and Specialization

    The program introduces the notion of specialization and compartmentalization in a non-biological context, as it applies to the cell. It looks at the example of a typical modern day business comprised of several different departments each of which serves a very specific and distinct function. Each department is an entity unto itself, but all work together for a common purpose. In much the same way, organelles function within cells in the human body and have many compartments, for example, the nucleus, DNA, and ribosomes where many metabolic activities take place. The dynamic graphics clearly lay out the parallels between the cell's functions and those of the modern day business' functions.

  • Signal Transduction

    The program describes the transmission of molecular signals from a cell's exterior to its interior signals which allow for changes to its environment. In other words, it depicts a signal pathway by which a cell moves a signal or a stimulus from one side of the cell to another, through a series of biochemical reactions. The process is detailed with colorful graphics and the use of everyday terms matched to the appropriate technical term. The point is made that a signal rarely causes a simple direct chemical change inside the cell, instead the signal sets off a chain of events that may involve several steps.

  • Gene Expression

    The episode explains that the human body follows a specific menu for a variety of conditions like embryo development, intense exercise, healing from an injury, or growing taller. For each condition there is a specific menu designed to respond to that situation, a process known as gene expression. A comparison of gene expression scenarios reveals that all genes do not express themselves in the same way. Some processes occur on a continuous basis, while others are expressed by particular cell types. The program stresses that synchronization is important to cell expression when genetic material must also be regulated.

  • Gene Expression - Dna & Rna

    Every cell in a living organism contains instructions for every structure (protein) and process in the body. These instructions are contained in DNA. The program describes the two major stages in gene expression, transcription and translation, and the critical importance of protein synthesis. It describes how proteins are involved in virtually all cell functions including transport, storage, movement, support and intercellular communications. Further discussion reveals that gene expression usually plays out as an extraordinarily well orchestrated series of biochemical steps, but sometimes things go wrong.

  • Cell Life Cycle: The Interphase

    The program illustrates that the cell cycle is a series of events that takes place in a cell culminating in its division and duplication. The processes are generally divided into two stages, interphase and cell division. Interphase is the part of cell's life cycle when it does not divide. In this first major period of the cell's life cycle, the cell grows and carries on its usual metabolic activities. There are 3 parts or phases that occur during the Interphase cycle: G1, Synthesis and G2. These phases are summarized in a pie graph detailing the functions and the specific terminology used to describe these functions.

  • Cell Life Cycle: The Cell Division

    The cell life cycle is defined as its sequence of growth, DNA replication, and cell division. In the Interphase stage the cell performs basic functions in preparation for cell division. In cell division, two processes occur: mitosis or division of the nucleus, and cytokinesis or division of the cytoplasm which in turn contains the organelles.

  • Cellular Metabolism

    The episode introduces and defines metabolism as the sum total of all chemical reactions that take place in an organism. In much the same way that power plants transform raw energy sources into useable electric power, cells process and transform nuclear molecules into a form of energy that allows cellular functions to be carried out. Cellular metabolism takes place in two processes, catabolism and anabolism, with ATP as the energy currency acting as a bridge between catabolism and anabolism.

  • Cellular Respiration

    Cellular respiration is defined as the process which breaks down energy rich molecules from food, into carbon dioxide and water with ATP as a by-product. ATP is the form of energy that cells use to do their work and producing it is the principle function of cellular respiration. Two types of cellular respiration are discussed: aerobic (needs oxygen) and anaerobic (doesn't need oxygen). The stages of cellular respiration are also described in detail. These include Glycolysis, the Krebs' Cycle, and Electron Transport Phosphorylation (chemiosmosis).

  • Passive Transport Processes

    Selective permeability is reviewed, and then the passive transport process is introduced. The process is defined as one in which some molecules pass through the cell membrane without needing additional energy. Different forms of diffusion are also described. These include simple, facilitated, osmosis, and filtration. Examples of water and salt being combined increase understanding.

  • Active Transport Processes

    This episode explains that selective permeability regulates what can and cannot pass through the cell membrane. It describes active transport processes in which integral proteins move molecules across the plasma membrane at a rate determined by their concentration gradient. Active transport is also described as a way of utilizing chemical energy, usually in the form of ATP. It is noted that Active Transport can be further delineated into primary (uses ATP) and secondary (uses electrochemical gradient).

  • Transport Mechanisms Other Than Passive Or Active

    This episode reviews the processes of selective permeability, passive transport using diffusion, and active transport. It points out that there are times when neither passive nor active transport will suffice, for example when molecules are too large or when they must be transported rapidly and in large numbers. The alternative, vesicular transport is discussed with an outline of its two main components, endocytosis and exocytosis.

  • Clinical Applications: Stem Cell Research

    The program discusses the challenges of stem cell research and the development of effective stem cell therapies. The unique importance of stem cells is highlighted, with embryonic stem cells able to develop many cell types during early life and growth, and adult stem cells capable of replenishing other cells. Bone marrow transplants are identified as the most common use of stem cells to date, although stem cell treatments will eventually be used to cure injuries and diseases that currently have no effective therapies. The advantages and disadvantages of both embryonic and adult stem cells in clinical applications and research are detailed. Induced pluripotent stem cells are described as one of the most promising areas of stem cell research because these cells will allow scientists to avoid the ethical issues surrounding the use of embryonic stem cells. The program concludes with a discussion of the challenges that lie ahead in the development of effective stem cell therapy.

  • Excitation Contraction Coupling: Smooth Muscle

    This program discusses the contraction and relaxation of smooth muscle tissue which is found in the walls of hollow organs such as blood vessels and organs of the digestive track. The contraction of smooth muscle is regulated by the autonomic nerve system and local chemical signals. To develop force, smooth muscle cells, like skeletal and cardiac muscle tissues, rely on crossbridge cycling between actin and myosin.

  • Skeletal Muscle Energy Metabolism

    This episode explores the role of adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, in muscle contraction. The skeletal muscles are the body's mechanism for powering movement, with ATP being the fuel required to enable muscles to contract. ATP formed by the cell's mitochondria is a just-in-time energy supply not a storehouse. Three metabolic systems that provide ATP are introduced: Phosphagen, Anaerobic, and Aerobic systems. The ATP connection is considered from the point of view of its duration, its source, and the presence of oxygen and lactic acid in each process.

  • Types of Skeletal Fibers

    Today, muscle fibers are more commonly categorized according to their twitch capabilities than by their color. A simple analogy of the Thanksgiving turkey's muscles of white or fast, and dark or slow, sets the scene for further explanations. Twitches are seen as unconscious contractions. Two types of twitch fibers, type one and type two, are compared and contrasted in relation to their location in the body, use of oxygen, resistance to fatigue, rate of contraction and other details.

  • Intro to the Nervous System

    In this overview, an analogy is made between the components and operations of a personal computer, and the components and operations performed by the central nervous system. The computer has its PCU (the brain or control center), input, output, and various cables (communications) linking its parts. The central nervous system has the brain which functions as a control center, and the spinal cord which serves as the main communications throughway. It's noted that the computer is a great multi-tasking system but the nervous system is even more impressive.

  • Organization of the Nervous System

    This episode describes the three step process the nervous system performs every day when it provides sensory input, integration, and motor output. Because the nervous system does so much and has so many parts, it is classified in two ways. Structurally it is described as having two branches, the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. Functionally, its two divisions are sensory/afferent and motor/efferent, further divided into voluntary and involuntary nervous systems.

  • Neural Transmission

    The focus of this episode is on the function of a nerve cell or neuron, and its ability to transmit information within the nervous system. The neuron's electrical and chemical signaling is called neural transmission. Neural activation is triggered by pressure, heat, light or chemical information from other cells. Types of stimulation are considered as are types of neurons: sensory, motor, and interneurons.

  • Action Potential Generation and Propagation

    This episode explains that rapid communication throughout the nervous system is made possible by the transmission of electrical signals called action potentials across the membranes of neurons. The surfaces of intracellular and extracellular membranes are described. The next focus is on the six phases of action potentials: resting potential, threshold, rising, falling, undershoot, and recovery. At the terminals, the action potentials trigger the release of neurotransmitters into synaptic cleft.

  • Brain Structure and Function

    This program explores the brain, the mass that regulates and controls nearly everything humans do, both voluntary and involuntary. The brain is described as an organ of many cooperative functions, composed of billions of highly specialized cells called neurons and glia. The many parts of the brain are detailed, starting with the two cerebral hemispheres into which the brain is divided. The outer cortex of grey matter and inner white matter together make up the cerebrum. The cerebrum is further divided into four lobes, the locations and functions of which are each described. The communications link between the two hemispheres, called the corpus callosum, and the limbic system, located within the cerebrum, are described. The presentation also includes the brain stem, its parts and roles. The program concludes by explaining that the brain continues to rewire and change its circuitry throughout our lives.

  • Spinal Cord Structure and Function

    The program begins by drawing an analogy between an old-fashioned telephone operator routing calls, and the spinal cord transmitting electrical information between the brain and the rest of the body. The structure of the spinal cord is described in detail as are the two major functions of the spinal cord: carrying information between the brain and the rest of the body, and coordinating reflexes which do not require conscious thought. Additionally, the means of transmission through afferent and efferent nerves is described. Demonstrations include the reactions of monosynaptic reflex arcs, and sensory neurons synapsing directly with motor neurons within the spinal cord. The spinal cord is divided into specific neurological segments, each with its own set of functions, which are described in the final part of the program.

  • Peripheral Nervous System: Somatic

    This program examines the somatic nervous system (SNS) - the part of the peripheral nervous system that allows the brain to consciously monitor environmental stimuli and regulate response activities. The SNS contains two major types of neurons, sensory (afferent) and motor (efferent). These neurons and their operations in transmitting information to and from the brain are described in some detail. The program ends with an examination of involuntary reflex arcs, in which a stimulus and response are transmitted via the spinal cord without activity in the brain, a process that allows for the fastest response.

  • Peripheral Nervous System: Autonomic

    This program describes the autonomic nervous system, the part of the peripheral nervous system responsible for activities that are carried out without conscious effort. This system keeps the body running smoothly, in most cases automatically. Examples include keeping the heart beating, digesting food, and cooling down after strenuous exercise. Two sub-systems, the sympathetic and the parasympathetic nervous systems, are also described. Scenarios are provided to illustrate the differences between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. The structural and functional arrangements of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems are explored in detail, highlighting the differences in pre-ganglionic and post-ganglionic axons. The program ends by demonstrating how most organs of the body are enervated by both branches of the autonomic nervous system, with either excitatory (sympathetic) or inhibitory (parasympathetic) actions.

  • Nervous System Case Study: Multiple Sclerosis

    This case study of multiple sclerosis (MS) shows that it is an autoimmune disease that attacks the central nervous system. The disease targets not only the myelin sheath that surrounds the cell's axons, but the axons themselves. Typical inflammatory and degenerative symptoms are identified. The segment profiles a patient who was diagnosed with MS at the age of 15. The progress of her disease is followed over a period of several years and includes an examination of the disease's impact on her life. With the goal of improving quality of life, treatment and rehabilitation methods are discussed. The program ends with a summary of current research that may one day lead to a cure.
